Special information for students of the Glen Cove High School Class of 2014.
Class of 2014 - It’s Time To Schedule Your Yearbook Photo & Senior Portrait!
To meet tight yearbook deadlines, the Glen Cove incoming seniors are photographed during July and August preceding their senior year. You must call to schedule your appointment now. PLEASE NOTE: Photos ARE NOT taken in school!
To best prepare you for taking your yearbook photo / senior portrait we have put together everything you need to know right here. It may seem like a lot of information, but hey, having your senior portrait taken is a big deal! It's likely to be one of the most monumental portraits taken in your lifetime.
Step ONE - Choose Your Photo Session:
Option 1 - The Mini Economy Session
This mini senior portrait session is available, at no cost, to all Glen Cove Class of 2014 Seniors photographed during July or August. Approximately 15 minutes is allocated per student for this session. A selection of previews will be sent home to choose your yearbook photo from as well as place an order for any additional prints.
Please arrive early for a mini session, sessions start at scheduled time. Late arrivals will require rescheduling.
Option 2 - The Standard Session
Up to a full hour is allocated to create a more relaxed session with a much greater variety of poses and images for you to choose from, resulting in a more personalized portrait session with better expressions.
The additional time also allows you to review images as they are taken to provide feedback on posing and expressions. Bringing a change of clothes and props such as sports equipment or an instrument is encouraged (see “What to Bring” on page 5). You can even bring a friend or family member!
This session is normally $95.00. However, this session is available to the Glen Cove Class of 2014 for only $25.00. That’s a savings of $70.00 off the $95.00 session fee that students who travel from other schools pay! Session fee must be paid in advance.
With a Standard Session you:
- Can review your images and provide feedback during your session
- Are photographed at a more relaxed pace
- Have a larger quantity of creative poses to select from
- Photographed with a greater selection of backgrounds
- Have more images captured of each pose
- Clothing changes allowed and encouraged
- May bring props such as an instrument or sports equipment
Option 3 - VIP Session with Makeup Application
This session brings the super model experience to every girl. It begins with a makeover that includes hairstyling and a professional makeup application by a certified cosmetologist. After hair and makeup, this session expands on the Standard Studio Session described above and lasts up to 90 minutes (not including makeup application time). This session requires a prepaid session fee of $95.00 and comes with a $25.00 senior portrait order savings coupon. Session subject to availability. Similar session for non-Glen Cove High School Seniors normally sells for $225.00.
Step TWO - Schedule Your Appointment
Senior portraits for the class of 2014 are scheduled to be taken during July and August and are taken at our Glen Cove Studio on Dosoris Way. Seniors are NOT photographed at the high school during the school year!
You may schedule your appointment by calling our studio at 516-674-0227
Note: If you schedule your appointment during the very end of August, or have an appointment automatically scheduled for you, options for re-scheduling will be extremely limited.
When scheduling your appointment, please do not hesitate to discuss any particular concerns you have about being photographed. Personal service and attention to your concerns is our highest priority!
What To Bring To Your Session
Our Mini Session doesn’t allow for enough time for clothing changes or creative poses so, all you need to bring is yourself and a smile!
For the yearbook photo, the school has requested that guys wear a JACKET and TIE (Tie tying assistance provided!), girls be dressed in similarly formal attire. Please, no denim!
Our Standard Session or V.I.P. Session is a whole different story!
After your yearbook and cap & gown images are created, this is an opportunity to have some great, professional studio-style images created that reflect your personality. Think about bringing some props or extra clothing to allow you and your photographer to get more creative. If you bring a selection of clothing we’ll help you select what will work best in your photos.
Here are some suggestions:
- Sports equipment - tennis racquet, bats, balls, lacrosse sticks, etc.
- Sportswear and/or team uniform
- Formal wear such as a gown, tux or suit
- Swimwear (we have outdoor/beach backgrounds and props)
- Casual wear - jeans, t-shirt, shorts, etc.
- Musical instruments - drums, guitars, horns, etc.
- Dance costumes
- A friend or family member
Looking Your Best
The school has requested that boys be photographed in a jacket and tie, and that girls be photographed in similarly formal attire. Additionally, we have caps and gowns in the GCHS colors. During your portrait, please be sure to advise us if you are an Honor Student so that we may photograph you with a gold honor stole during your cap and gown images. If you are thinking about something really wild and crazy with your hair, you may want to wait until after your portrait session. (You probably realize that wild and crazy will not be your hair style very long.) Please be sure to discuss with us any particular concerns you have about being photographed.
Finding Our Studio
We are located at 5 Dosoris Way in Glen Cove. Dosoris Way runs between Forest Avenue and Walnut Road. We are three doors up from the Locksmith on the Corner of Dosoris Way and Forest Avenue and are acrosss from the Piano Exchange on the opposite corner.
Arriving For Your Appointment
Please be sure to arrive early. To accommodate all of the seniors, appointments are often scheduled closely together. If you show up late, we may not have enough time for your portrait, especially if you scheduled a Mini Session, and we will be forced to reschedule your appointment (a rescheduling fee will apply). Please do not put us in the awkward position of asking you to reschedule your appointment due to lateness!
Rescheduling, Cancellations, and No-Shows
We are pleased to afford every Glen Cove High School Senior the opportunity to reserve time in our studio to have their yearbook images and senior portrait created at absolutely no cost to the student. To accomplish this we must have our studio properly equipped, setup, staffed, air conditioned, and time reserved for each scheduled appointment.
Please give us at least 24 hours notice if you can not make your scheduled appointment. No-shows and appointments that must be rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice are subject to a mandatory $25.00 rescheduling fee.
About Your Previews
A selection of previews will be created from your portrait session. You should receive these previews in the mail 2 - 4 weeks after your session. If, after 4 weeks, you have not received your previews, please contact our studio. The number of preview images you receive depends on the photo session you choose.
Selecting Your Yearbook Pose
As soon as you receive your previews you will want to choose your pose for your yearbook selection. Your yearbook pose must be chosen from one of the head and shoulder poses on the selected background. You may send in your yearbook selection with or without an order. Yearbook pose selection must be made no later than 10 days after receiving your previews. We will select your yearbook pose for you if we haven’t received your selection from you in time.
Ordering Prints, Packages and Frames
When you receive your previews you will be given the opportunity to order prints. We have a number of packages available for Glen Cove High School Graduates at a substantial savings from our regular studio prices. With your previews, you will receive ordering instructions and a catalog of available packages, frames and more.
All images ordered are color-balanced and retouched for the removal of minor blemishes, correction of skin-tone and softening of shadows. Enhanced retouching services are available for a fee and will be outlined in your ordering information. These services include removal of braces, tan lines, eyeglass glare, extreme blemishes and oily skin glare.
Basic retouching of your yearbook pose is free with any order. If you are not ordering any prints, your yearbook photo may be retouched for a small fee. That fee may be applied toward any future order.
Please note: Basic retouching does not include fly-away hair, tan lines, facial hair, or oily skin. Arrive early and check your appearance before your session Be sure to check out the “Looking Your Best”!
